AUGUST 2010 MEETING NOTES

September 17, 2010

WOOLY WONDERS FIBER GUILD

Notes of meeting of 8/28/10

Our August meeting was held at the home of Sue Spencer.

The Treasurer’s report indicated that $991.19 is in our account. Recent disbursements included prize money for Venango 4H Fair and Crawford County Fair. Ginnie provided identification of the Venango 4H Fair winners. Julie plans to talk to the winner of the Crawford County Fair soon.

Jane provided information on B’ewe”tiful Knits, a new yarn shop in Clarion (408 Main Street, 814-229-1598, http://www.bewetifulknits.com ). The current hours of operation are 3-7pm Monday-Friday and 10 am-3 pm on Saturday. Information regarding classes, etc is available on their web site.

Barb Wingert presented her interpretation of the “Afterthought Heel”, a clever way to defer the heel placement decision and create a custom-size sock. We all appreciated her hands-on easy to see sample details.

Many show and tell items were shared. A pot-luck picnic lunch with knitting and socializing followed the meeting.

Our September 25th meeting will be at Suzanne’s. One important item for discussion will be planning for the 2011 Knitters Retreat. A few preliminary ideas were discussed at the August meeting, but for the most success, input and participation from additional members will be required. Last year’s organizers did a great job. That experience has helped them define the various tasks/functions/committees necessary for an even better retreat in 2011. Please think about the retreat organization and the areas that you feel would best use your talents, interests or contacts.
